Look out Katniss. I have replaced you as ‘girl on fire.’ I was feeling the burn this week, and my muscles were sore enough to prove it! (My chest was sore yesterday after Monday’s workout.)
I’m trying not to annoy you guys with LiveFit updates, but I think I’m due for one.I was agitated with the rest days in week 1. Now that it’s week 2, I’m embracing the rest days. I’ll still go for moderate walks Saturday and Sunday as “active rest,” but I’m refraining from cardio. Weeks 3 and 4 still call for weights-only training, but they at least have me in the gym 5 days in a week instead of 4.
I’m not sticking to the nutrition plan 100%, but I have significantly cleaned up my diet. If I stuck to this plan as-written for 12 weeks, I’d be a twig. I’d be angry. I’d be cranky. I’d have no social life. You know what – I’d rather not be an angry, unsocial twig.
Most of my meals are super nutritious and protein-packed. I have even cut down my non-hungry noshes and my night-time comfort cravings. I felt legitimate hunger Wednesday night, so I opted for a hardboiled egg instead of cookies. Sounds like a step in the right direction!
***Note: As mentioned, I enjoyed beer and appetizers last Thursday night, and I thoroughly enjoyed wine and lasagna last Friday night. As I said, there’ll be no angry, unsocial Tiff here.
The Bod: I lost 1.5 pounds the first full week (according to my Tuesday weigh-ins). Due to the decreased carb intake, a good portion of this was definitely water-weight, but that’s just what I need to motivate myself to stay on track this week.
